More Metal and Lace

I am really loving this technique! I found some other items to cover with double knots! Here is a metal disk I made into a slide. Done in DMC metallic thread (the spool kind) a fresh water pearl and tiny silver beads.



In the previous post I showed you the tiny heart that I made into an earring. In the same package came two more hearts medium and large. Here is what I did with the large one, another slide, made with the metallic and tiny beads. I think I may add some crystals or even a pearl for the next one. Sometimes you have to work through these to get the covering right and the balance of the rings before you can add extra. Not bad for a first try especially with the metallic which I love but can be quite troublesome when working with it.





I've seen that Plaid has some other metal pieces that may work with this technique so I'm off to tat for the day!

Such beautiful pendants! I like tatting bits when the cord or chain part isn't all tatting...I think it sets off the tatting better that way. Lovely work!

You are doing some amazing tatted jewelry pieces with these different shaped pieces metal. I've enjoyed looking through your blog. Your tatting shuttle collection is fantastic also!
